diameter: 5.91inch (15cm), height: 2.26inch (6cm), standard flat style matcha bowl size Sophisticated Kyo Yaki (Kyoto Style) Made by Kohgiku Nakamura in Kohgiku Kiln

This glass Matcha bowl is flat and open style. The flat, open and low height of this Matcha bowl quickly lowers the temperature of the Matcha. This Matcha bowl is ideal for the summer season, but may be used throughout the year, depending on your preference, to serve not only tea, but ice cream, snacks and other treats.

AOKAEDE of this name means green maples, and HIRA CHAWAN means flat shape and low height bowl in Japanese. AOKAEDE green maples are a well-loved symbol of summer, like the SAKURA national flower of Japan is a symbol of spring. The refined beauty of AOKAEDE is elaborately painted on the transparent glass tea ware. Each color is very soft and gentle, and the color gradation is quite delicate and beautiful. The contrast of maple leaves in both deep and light colors, express that AOKAEDE leaves are young and new. Adding to that, the subtle gradation in colors evokes the peaceful and cool summer season.

This bowl can be used not only for serving Matcha, but for a wide variety of food and drink, such as ice cream and small snacks, and is perfect for everyday use or for special occasions. Depending on your preference, it is possible to use this bowl throughout the year.

The colorful patterns are painted on the outside surface of the glass. The impression of viewing from the inside is interestingly different because these patterns are seen through the glass. Adding the deep green color of Matcha creates a beautiful composition. This sophisticated glass Matcha bowl brings a unique atmosphere to your table, and makes any moment special.

He follows in the footsteps of traditional artists such as Ninsei Nonomura and Ogata Kenzan, and his work is based on traditional Kyoto style. He excels at bright and vivid works. Ninsei Nonomura was an artist who developed Kyo-Yaki style in the early 17th century. He was best known for his definitive pottery wheel technique and printing on Kyo-Yaki. Kenzan Ogata (1663-1743) was one of the first to paint four seasons flowers on pottery in Japan.
